Opening up January rewards

You, our backers, continue to amaze! 

In less than five days we have completely run out of December "watch with charger" rewards. Simply incredible.

Many of you have asked if we are going to open up new reward tiers for more watches—or if we are limiting production to just 4,205 units.

I'm happy to announce that we are making more rewards available—but not for December delivery.

We're not willing to compromise delivery to our current backers, and promising to make more watches faster would do exactly that.

AGENT is a premium designer smartwatch. We can comfortably assemble, test and package 200 smartwatches per day. So for the first few months of production, we'll be limiting production to 1,000 watches per week.

We just opened a reward tier for JANUARY AGENTS. Because the chargers are in such demand, for January we are going to initially focus production on rewards with chargers. We've made 2,500 "watch with charger" rewards available. When the rewards fill up, we can add up to 1,500 more rewards for January (for a total of 4,000 watches for the month).

For new backers who missed out on the $199 December "watch with charger" rewards, there are still $149 December "watch only" rewards available. Since your AGENT smartwatch will use the Qi wireless charging standard, you can charge it with any Qi-compliant charging pad.

We'll have another update for you by Tuesday night (NYC time). We have been working on a stretch bonus that we're pretty excited about, an add-on to the core AGENT OS which is made possible by the additional funds pledged since Wednesday. More on that soon.

We are going to continue to update you regularly, sharing cool details as we prepare the AGENT smartwatch for volume production.

Thank you again for your amazing outpouring of support,

- Chris

      @Kronic Kidd -- from Chris -- your AGENT smartwatch will have a backlight for the screen. What you see in those pictures is the effect of ambient light on the prototypes. I do think that the prototypes are beautiful :) Thank you for your support!

      CANT WAIT!!! my Lumia 920 needs this! Also, does the watch face light up blue around the trim? i see that in one of the pics!? thanks for the great innovation.

      @Kristian Atkinson -- from Chris -- hopefully your wife and colleagues don't get jealous of your new wrist gear. Runway and fashion beachwear shows here in NYC have dressed their lady models with House of Horology's Bedlam watches--and from the feedback we've received, quite a few women have generously backed this project as well :)

      I personally use a Lumia 920 by the way. Fantastic phone. Thank you for your support!

      Hi Guys, love the watch and can't wait to get my hands on one. As a Windows Phone user with a Lumia 920 I am over the moon with the fact that you not only support the Windows Phone platform, but also the Qi wireless charging. Hope to see a ladies version in the future for my wife and colleagues. Regards, Kristian (MS WP Champ).

      I love this watch. Where I work phones have to be on silent. No more missed calls. Thank you.

      This watch looks very cool! I Can't wait for Christmas (was just in time for a "December" reward...). Thank you for keeping us backers up to date during the whole process, that is very much appreciated!
